Trump Was Asked About Kavanaugh’s Drinking In High School, His Answer Is Hilarious
The news cycle has been nothing but Kavanaugh, Kavanaugh, Kavanaugh for the last few weeks, and it doesn’t appear that there’s an end in sight.
Amidst the most partisan, outrageous Supreme Court confirmation process in this country’s history President Trump did what he could to lighten the mood.
During a press conference, Trump was asked if he would pull Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination if it’s revealed he misled the Judiciary Committee about his drinking habits in high school. Nobody could’ve guessed that this would be his response.
“I’m just saying, I’m not a drinker,” Trump said. “I can honestly say I’ve never had a beer in my life.”
Whoa. 72 years old, and he’s never had a beer?! Of course, his answer caused a bit of a chuckle from the media, but that’s probably because they aren’t aware of Trump’s family history involving drugs and alcohol.
In 1981 President Trump lost his older brother to alcoholism. The president has said that his brother’s death “had a profound impact” on him and is a huge reason why he’s never had alcohol, or done drugs.
Not one to bring down the mood, Trump continued to joke about how ridiculous he’d be if he were the type to pound a few brewskis every day.
“I’ve never had alcohol, you know, for whatever reason. Can you imagine if I had what a mess I’d be? Would I be — I’d be the world’s worst.”
After he was done joking around Trump turned to a more serious tone, and asked why people hadn’t brought up Kavanaugh’s supposed “drinking problem” over the course of the last few decades in public service: “I can tell you, I watched that hearing, and I watched a man saying he did have difficulty as a young man with drink. The one question I didn’t ask is how about the last 20 years? Have you had difficulty the last 20 years? Because no one said anything bad about him in many, many years.”
Trump went on to say that back in his day he witnessed numerous people drinking too much, and asked “does that mean that they can’t do something that they want to do with their life?”
Surely Trump, like many Americans, recognizes the absurdity of this process. Here we are calling the FBI to look into Kavanaugh’s high school years. Nobody has ever alleged any wrongdoing in the man’s 20+ year career in public service, yet on the 11th hour he’s been accused of absolutely atrocious act against women.
Another thing is that the people calling for the investigation have absolutely zero intention of having their mind changed in regards to the way they will vote. Democrats said from day one they will oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and yet they want an investigation so they can… not change their minds anyway?
